Christmas Tears Lyrics

Eric Clapton
I hear sleigh bells ring
I haven't heard a word from you in years
I hear sleigh bells ringin'

But I haven't heard a word from you in years
I hear choirs singin'
And I'm just sittin' here cryin' Christmas tears

Everybody's singin' "Merry Christmas"
As they watch the starry sky filled with reindeer
Everybody's singin' "Merry Christmas"
As they watch the starry sky filled with reindeer
I'm smilin' on the outside
But on the inside I'm cryin' Christmas tears

You been gone such a long, long time
But it's Christmas and I can't get you off of my mind
Seems like you been gone a hundred years or more
But if you were here with me now
I'd hang "Merry Christmas" on my door

I need ya darling
Kiss and hold me tight
I need ya darling
On a lonely Christmas night
And as I sit and think of the lonely years
I can't help but cry, oh, Christmas tears
Oh, Christmas tears
